Namco Bandai has dished out some intriguing and free delights to the app store.
First up is the rather charming Toss the Ball. Remember all those happy times at the carnival or fair desperately trying to toss the ball into the highest scoring holes? This is exactly that but without the fixed nature that the funfair games always seemed to offer. The free game offers four different game modes in the form of Rolling Race, Ball of Time, Chill Mode and a Multiplayer mode too. Five game boards can also be played on including the Speedy Board and Lover Board amongst others. Different balls can also be used such as the Treasure Ball and Ninja Ball plus there's a whole bunch of power-ups and bonuses that can be used to increase scores.
Toss the Ball is free to play with extra content available for a small fee of $0.99 via an in-app purchase but there's plenty to do here anyway. The title also promises daily bonuses too as well as up to six player multiplayer locally or up to 4 players via GameCenter.
Also today marks the release of Pac'N Twit, a Pac-Man themed Twitter client. Pac'N Twit promises to perform all the basic Twitter functions like viewing timelines, replying, viewing direct messages and editing lists. Search functions also exist happily here along with a push notification system and full compatibility with multiple accounts. For the Galaga fan, there are also two skins based around the classic retro game as well as Pac-Man. Plus there's a form of puzzle game bundled in too in order of winning iPhone wallpaper.
For the Twitter user looking for something a bit more memorable than standard Twitter apps, this is a great way of interacting with others. Pac'N Twit is a free app for iPhone 3GS and above devices.
